Directed Exhibiting and Training at KnowledgeFest Indianapolis

VISTA, Calif. (March 15, 2019) – Directed announced today its training schedule for KnowledgeFest Indianapolis, continuing its relationship with the Mobile Electronics Association (MEA) as Platinum Partners.

“Exhibiting and training at KnowledgeFest and strengthening our partnership with MEA are fantastic ways to showcase Directed’s industry leadership in product innovation and support,” said Directed CEO Bob Struble. “We had a great time last month in Long Beach and look forward to sharing our latest and greatest this week in Indy and this summer in Dallas.”

Directed will be at the Indiana Convention Center from the 15th through the 17th. Attendees can experience Directed’s industry leading innovation in Booth 522, where they’ll see the latest on the breakthrough DS4 Digital Remote Start and Security System; Viper SmartStart Pro, the industry’s fastest Connected Car Product; Viper Powersports Security and GPS products; and the brand new industry-first Wireless Bluetooth Siren. Attendees can also learn about the new revenue opportunities available from Directed’s Ignition Interlock business, Alcohol Detection Systems.

Directed’s booth will showcase the “Race the CEO Challenge — V2” – a live installation challenge in a Jeep Wrangler. To highlight the speed and simplicity of DS4 and SmartStart Pro installations, Directed’s CEO Bob Struble throws the challenge flag for KnowledgeFest attendees. Participants in the install race will try to beat Bob’s time and compete for prizes. Directed’s Race the CEO Challenge will be available during all show floor hours. In Long Beach, Tyler Hargrave of J’s Alarms won the Race the CEO challenge with a time of 1 minute and 49 seconds and won a Denon / Definitive Technology sound system.

Directed will again award a sound system for the fastest installer in Indy, and give away two additional systems, one to a participant in Directed’s #RaceTheCEO social media challenge, and one for simply checking in to the booth.

During trainings at KnowledgeFest Indy, Directed Product Specialist Representatives will coach up attendees on the latest technical updates in Directed’s evolving product line. Show attendees can choose from four different timeslots, so there’s no reason to not attend. All training attendees will receive a Directed giftbag full of Directed swag and as an added bonus, Directed will give away Denon headphones and Bluetooth speakers during trainings.

Training sessions for KnowledgeFest Indianapolis are scheduled as following:

Friday, March 15 from 1:45pm-2:45pm in Room 128
Friday, March 15 from 3:00pm-4:00pm in Room 128
